You could also add a wash cloth bar, soap dish, shampoo rack, etc. to cover up the access hole. If you can access the back of the shower stall, you could mount a mirror or some other accessory to hide the opening.

No access to the back of the stall.
The stall is in the rear corner of the coach, flush up against both walls, and the valve is in the corner. Above the shower valve is a 2.5' panel that has a few small molded shelves for soap, that is removable.
And the valve itself has a roughly 6" circle that's revealed when the trim is removed.
That still leaves VERY tight access because of the corner. You can fit one hand down behind the valve itself, nothing more.
So to connect the water lines to the shower valve, you have to put one hand down through the hold where the soap shelf was, and the other in thru the hole for the shower valve.

Not a great design.
Great place to take a shower, as it's in the corner of the bedroom, so tons of space when you get out of the shower, just not very servicable.

Ok...I think I won.

I had just enough room to pull the lines up as high as I could, and cut the old fittings off.
They were some sort of PEX fitting.
I put two 1/2" hose clamps part way down the line to keep the second hose clamps from falling down the line, then used 90deg elbows with female NPT on one end onto the shower valve, and male shark bites on the water line side. Shoved the shark bites down as far as I could, then tightened the hose clamps.
So leaks.

So yeah...shark bites are my friends

I'd just cut the pex (or poly) off a little closer to the floor, get some "shark bite" fittings and start from there with new supply lines.
